CIA Lobby

The military intelligence of Israel has reportedly sent a letter to all the soldiers and officers in the Israeli Defense Forces to beware of CIA recruitment attempts and report any contacts immediately.

According to a report on the case published in the Yedioth Ahronoth newpaper, American interrogators, presumably CIA operatives, tried to convince young Israelis arriving in the U.S., to join the ranks of the spy agency.

Military intelligence routinely warns soldiers – especially those of the Intelligence Corps – to be careful what they post on social media or discuss on non-encrypted phone lines.

It is unusual, though, for a letter to be sent to all soldiers in the entire army, and even more so for a warning to be issued against recruiting attempts by the spy agency of a friendly nation.
